Pen & Ink Sketches In Chancery, A Lounger in the Courts

Lot 3 View Catalog


Pen and Ink Sketches In Chancery. By a Lounger in the Courts. Parts I-III [all published]. Not in Bland. An acute depiction of the late 19th century Chancery bar, putatively written by a disheartened litigant who has taken up 'lounging' in the Court, but clearly (in the words of a contemporary) "the results of long observation". William [and Richard] Amer, Law Bookseller & Publisher [etc.], London, 1877-82.
